The future of the Repatriation General Hospital site
The Repatriation General Hospital provides high quality services, but many of the current public hospital facilities are outdated and cannot provide all of the spaces, equipment and layout needed for modern medical treatments. Implementing changes through Transforming Health will see most clinical and rehabilitation services currently provided at the Repatriation General Hospital transitioned to other metropolitan hospitals or locations. These changes will not happen immediately but will result in the public hospital components of the Repatriation General Hospital site facilities becoming vacant.
The Repatriation General Hospital site has been earmarked for healthcare, ageing, teaching and community related purposes. It remains a site with many potential future uses, including, but not limited to:
- respite care
- retirement or other services for older people
- primary health services, such as a private medical practice
- teaching and other academic uses.
The Chapel, Museum and the Remembrance Garden will be retained for their considerable significance, particularly to World War II Veterans and their families. Orthotics and Prosthetics SA, the Flinders University Health Sciences building and ViTA service will also remain on site. Potential options for future use of the site will complement these historic buildings and services.
The Government has committed to exploring opportunities with community groups for the future use of the site.Proposals will be part of future community consultation.
SA Health now invites private and non-government organisations to take part in a Registration of Interest process, which will be followed by an Expression of Interest process, to identify future uses for the Repatriation General Hospital site.
Organisations who register their interest will be invited to an industry briefing and site tour to showcase the features, benefits and wide ranging complementary multi-purpose opportunities for use that the site presents.
The Registration of Interest process will be followed by an Expression of Interest process to seek formal proposals from interested organisations. The details of the Expression of Interest process will be developed in the coming months.
Organisations can register their interest by forwarding their contact details to Health.RepatriationGeneralHospitalSiteFuture@health.sa.gov.au by 22 May 2015.
